Overview
More
These beautiful historic gardens and arboretum dating back to the late 1700's are surrounded by over 1600 acres of countryside within the picturesque village of Upper Arley beside the river Severn. In addition to providing wonderful walks through the grounds there are walks along the banks of the river, all set in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside with far reaching views. Go back in time and watch the Severn Valley Railway trains steam across the hill from one of the magnificent signposted walks. It is a garden that provides the ideal day out for you and your family, a dream escape from the bustle of everyday life. Our proximity to Birmingham, Kidderminster, Wolverhampton, Worcester, the Malverns and Cotswolds makes us the ideal attraction for individuals and groups alike. The estate offers plenty to do for all ages from the Italian garden with its fountain for the adults, to the dinosaur and fairy trails and maze for the young ones. Arley Estate and Arboretum also provides a unique venue for your wedding reception, civil ceremony, or partnership. There is more to Arley Estate and Arboretum than just a garden. It can also be used for corporate hospitality, promotional and photographic shoots and filming. Furthermore, there is a wonderful tea room, where you can buy a light lunch or full, traditional afternoon tea. We hope you enjoy your visit to Arley Arboretum and Garden and thank you for taking time to look at our Trip Advisor page.

Not just trees but gardens as well. There are many vistas to bring your walk to a halt. The staff are helpful which is useful as the designated walks are confusing as they generally cut across paved walkways. It is relatively small so losing one's...More

Nice stroll around the garden with not a lot of special interest. Some, not many Acers, a lot of Firs and a very confusing map! Saw several “lost” folks. Not very big but ok for a couple of hours. Small cafe which was quite nice....More

What a great place, and improving all the time. Looks like quite a lot of work on the old house to turn it into usable reception rooms or something. Marquees in the grounds as well. The walled garden is wonderful and the trees are lovely....More

Yes there is but can’t remember how much. It was such a shambles when we went you could probably get in without paying. Perhaps they have changed the system.
